Excerpt: Bought this for my SLIK M410 Master Pro Deluxe tripod that I have had forever (35+years). The original pan/tilt head is rock solid but I wanted a fluid head for my new Canon T5i for video & panaramas.
Excerpt: I just bout this tripod because my last one broke, and have so far been extremely pleased with it. The fluid head is beautifully smooth and stable. It has a very solid feel, not flimsy at all. All in all an excellent tripod.
Pros: Easy To Use, Improves Performance, Professional Quality
Excerpt: I bought this tripod to use with my Canon 7D after I'd used my friend's equipment with the same setup. I like that it's not cheaply made. It's solid and sturdy without being too heavy, and the head has fairly good movement. It was in the price range I was looking for, and it serves my purposes well.
Pros: Easy To Use, Highly Compatible, Lightweight, Professional Quality, Sturdy
Excerpt: The head is pretty fliud, however it doesn't seem to lock in place in terms of panning and it spins pretty freely. Trying to figure it out but being that I've been using tripods for 8+ years I don't think it should be this difficult.
Excerpt: It worked OK but very heavy but was study. To extend the legs one would have to turn many of the screw type of tighten-ers. One can't tell if he has used enough force. So it's a unsure struggle to secure the legs in or out...These knobs are just waiting to fail. Always a poor design.
Cons: Poor Design, Poor Performance, Pricey / Poor Value
Excerpt: Versatile, easy to use, very smooth. I bought this head and tripod years ago and loved it. During our last move, the spring clamp on the head was broken when our gorilla movers got their hands on it.... I didn't hesitate to get the exact same head to replace the broken one. Well worth the extra $$$.
Pros: Easy To Use, Highly Compatible, Professional Quality
